3* champs

With the current game setup what is the purpose of 3* champs? 2* have that cool arena once a year, 4* are still helpful as are 5* and 6*......where do 3 * actually come in besides being irritating rewards for cav crystal bad luck

    I guess other than variant 4? Any other use?

    Progressing players.

    You can actually get 4 and 5 stars so fast now 3*s are barely even useful for progression. I started an acc like a month ago, got a free 3* almost straight away and a 4* by mid act 2 (think it was from that 2* arena). I never ranked a 3* at all because I just didn't need to, it would've been a waste of gold and iso. I did max a 3* doom when i pulled him a little later on bc it's doom, but that was the only exception (I'd have done quake too if I could get hold of her). Granted, I had prior experience, but I'm pretty sure anybody starting around this time doesn't stick with 3*s for very long at all.

    Around this time, We have good rewards, but many people, including Seatin when he made a ftp, literally beat Maestro before obtaining a 4*.
    Also for beginners, 3*s are gonna be helpful for grinding out basic champs in the beginner bracket arena

    Do these people just... not do side quests? There's currently a quest that takes 0 energy that can get like 2 4*s in 3 days on a realatively easy difficulty level. On top of that, there was a boss rush not long ago that handed out 5, a 2* arena that got 1, the SA calendar (although the 4* took a while on that tbf). If people are finishing act 4 and don't have 4*s it's because they didn't need to obtain a 4*, probably becuase they are experienced players. I personally obtained 2 5*s on my side account before beating maestro, not because I needed them but because they took so little effort to get, and I didn't want to invest in 3*s that are going to be less useful later on. If I was giving advice to a new player, it definitely would not be "invest in 3*s", and would be closer to "hoard your iso and gold for when you pull 4*s".

    Keep in my mind you have to be level 25 to unlock the side quest I think. Also Kabam was on a way different path a while ago, but now things have changed for the good, or at least it has

    Synergies for when you haven't got a 4* or higher?

    Right now I'm sad I don't have a 3* Namor.
    I have the 4* and 5*, sig 20 and undupe, 5* mutant AG but no sigs
    I'm stuck at a stupid Korg in V3.

    Maestro was easy tbh, beat him using a Sentry 4 star rank 2 (or 3) and a Loki 4 star rank 3. I hope there aren’t any 3 stars in the thornbreaker crystals (although it think their shouldn’t be any in the CAV crystals as you can’t even use 4 stars let alone 3 stars in act 6)
